Take the age-old truths of the Bible and present them through engaging messages, striking visuals, and great music. Moreover, we are authentic and passionate about presenting Christ in a way that is new and refreshing. The leaders of Faith Fellowship are intentional about creating an atmosphere that takes the stress out of going to church.  Whether you have never been to church, been away for a while, or have attended your entire life, Faith Fellowship feels immediately comfortable. From the moment you pull into the parking lot, we will make you feel at home. Parking volunteers will help you find a place, and they are available to assist you in getting inside if needed.

Faith Fellowship is barely into the second decade of living out our mission: to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Come and see why so many people are making Faith Fellowship a part of their lives.

You will experience worship at Faith Fellowship in a casual, intuitive, high-tech atmosphere with today’s culture in mind. The weekend service is creative, contemporary, and compelling with only one intent–to present the message of Jesus Christ in a way that is relevant and alive. The high-energy, cutting-edge worship, drama, and multimedia presentations highlight the worship experience. Pastor Dr. Daymond Talkington uses a no-holds-barred communication style in applying God’s Word to life’s complexities. This isn’t church as you have known it; it is energetic, captivating, and never boring.

The band is styled after the timeless rock and roll lineup, complete with electric and acoustic guitars, bass, drums, and keyboard. The sounds you hear on your favorite radio stations can also be heard at Faith Fellowship–rock, soul, jazz, and blues. The band rivals any in the area (Christian or secular).

If you have children, rest assured that they will be in the best possible care. All members of the Children’s Ministry Team undergo a criminal and civil background check to ensure complete safety. While parents are experiencing the creative, life-changing weekend service, children are participating in their own high-energy encounter in the new Kids Zone Building. They won’t want to go home!

  • got carrots? • 24 Carrot – 9/25/22

    Are you rich? Most of us would say no. So then, at what income level would you consider yourself rich? Research indicates that most people felt that if they made twice what they currently earn it would be enough to make them feel rich. However, that was overall the same response no matter whether a person made $35,000 per year or $1,000,000 per year. Our tendency is to believe that just a little more will put us where we want to be. But “more” is elusive, like a carrot dangling from a stick that could be reached if we worked a bit harder, got that promotion, changed jobs, or won the lottery! It’s just out of reach. The fact is, the quality of life isn’t measured by the amount of money you have. But if money were the measure, do you know that around 3 billion people globally live on less than $2 per day. If you make, what’s considered a mid-range income, you are in the top 1% of global wealth. Do you feel rich now?

    Scriptures – Luke 12:15, 20-21, 48, 18:24-25; Ecclesiastes 5:19; 1 Timothy 6:17-19

    Verse – Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life. (1 Ti 6:17-19)

    Thought – I have some good news and some bad news for you. First, the good news: You are rich! You may be thinking you have more bills than money, but do you ever spend $6 on a latte? That’s 3 days income for someone in this world. Does it upset you when you go through a drive-up and later find they forgot the dipping sauce? Do you ever try to figure out where to eat and nothing sounds good even though there are 20 restaurants for which you have easy access? You get the idea! No matter what financial pressure you may be feeling, you need to acknowledge before God that you are blessed and live with thankfulness for all that God has provided, be it great or small in the eyes of our culture. Now for the bad news! You are rich! Being rich can put you at a tremendous spiritual disadvantage. Jesus said in Luke 18 that it’s harder for a rich person to enter the kingdom of heaven than for a camel to go through the eye of a needle. Why? Because when you have a roof over your head, food in the pantry, and some savings for the future, it’s easy to overlook the fact that God provides your daily needs. It’s also easy to be distracted. When you have rich people options and opportunities you get busy, tired, overwhelmed, often doing so much that you miss out on what matters most. God has expectations of you. Luke 12 says, “to whom much has been entrusted, even more will be demanded.” Paul gives instructions for the rich in 1 Timothy (see above). Be generous, willing to share, rich in good deeds, and in return God promises a life that’s fuller, better, richer and he promises even more blessings.

    Questions – How do you define “rich”? What is your general opinion of rich people? Are you content with what you have? If you had an opportunity to be twice as wealthy as you are, would you take it? How do you think having great financial resources would affect your faith, works, and serve? 

    Response – Write down things you are thankful for. Thank God for his provision, blessings, and faithfulness. Find ways to bless the lives of others, help those in need, and give to God’s kingdom on a regular basis.

    Prayer – Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for providing all that I need and for my many blessings. I want to honor you with all you have given me. Help your spirit of generosity to grow in me and make me sensitive to situations where you want me to make a difference in the lives of others. May I live with a full heart and open hands to do your work and your will! In Jesus Name I pray, amen.
